"Goodrest" at 104 Toorak Road, South Yarra in Melbourne was initially acquired by Hiring Service for Naval Intelligence Allied Directorate. It was then later used by the Far Eastern Liaison Office (FELO) during WW2. FELO was the Military Propaganda Section of Allied Intelligence Bureau (AIB).

Naval Commander John Proud relocated FELO to Brisbane from Melbourne where he commandeered a house called "Kirkston" in Rupert Street, Windsor. He kept his office in Melbourne which was located in "Goodrest".  Lt. McGuire stayed in Melbourne in charge of FELO Special Branch, the "dirty tricks" side of FELO.
